I don’t see anything in the changelog about removing the necessity for the DIM to use the Public documents folder, and allowing the option to use a user folder instead (as it should and as all the hundreds of other programs I have and have had did/do).
Is this correct? Is it still insisting on using the Public documents folder? If so, still unacceptable to me.
And another thing really peeving me. I see in My Product Library that with the complete move to the zips, there is now no longer an indication in My Product Library what VERSION the download product is, so I can’t see if there’s been an update to things.
This is really shabby. DAZ produce the DIM program breaking programming standards (at least on Windows); they SAY we don’t have to use it and can just download stuff by hand if we want; but then they REMOVE vital information from the download pages that are essential to managing one’s content without using DIM. There is no reasonable excuse for removing the product version - at the very least it could still be in the zip filename when mousing over the download button. This is clearly just a cheap shot to try to force everyone into using the DIM. But I am NOT using the DIM until/unless it abides by standards and at least offers the OPTION of using User folders instead of Public ones. If it becomes effectively impossible to manage my content without the DIM - as appears to be the trajectory with the removal of product version info from the Product library pages - then I shall simply go elsewhere for content.
I upgraded my Test computer to 64 bit so I had to do a clean install and I noticed there was an update and I don’t like it very much.
I didn’t and won’t use this CMS, nor Smart Content TAB. With the installation of DS4.6 I skipped the install of CMS and now the DIM installer just installs it without any notice whatsoever. Why can’t I just choose to not use the CMS? I only use it for downloading and I was almost going to install DIM on my main computer because I like it the way it downloads very fast but now I don’t. So I have to keep dl manually everything *sigh*
I’ve read in the first post there was a manual install for the CMS for Carrara users, why could it be that way for everyone? Just skip the CMS like the DS4.6 installer? Is there any way I can still do that?
I know that and I did that but when I wanted to use the DIM(188.8.131.52_Win32) for downloading on my new system it wouldn’t go further because there was an update, so I let it update…. then it installed the CMS! So now this CMS -the Process- is still running and I closed DS a few hours ago, have to install more than just DS. :wink:
Put in a feature request through Bug Tracker here https://bugs.daz3d.com It re.quires a separate login from your DAZ account
Why should a program following standards every other program, by anyone, and even other DAZ programs follow be a feature request?
And, after DAZ arbitrarily closed all by bug reports last year, unfixed, even though I had been updating them version release after version release as requested, I am not inclined ever to use the bug tracker again.
Did the update last night. Started up DIM and it immediately told me there was an update and what would happen. At the same time the forums were down for maintenance so wasn’t sure how far wide that was throughout DAZ3D but apparently the servers where the downloads are stored were not affected so the update went as expected. While it does show and download the DS 4.5 plugins still doesn’t find the PS plugins folder so the PS Bridge is still sitting in the queue to be installed. All the other plugins were installed, hopefully correctly. lol This little program just gets better and better. Thanks DAZ!
Did you add the path to Photoshop in Settings > Applications?
I have tried the DIM and everytime I use it I cant find the files in Daz ..where the heck do they go ..I still used the exe files if they are available but when not I have to download the zip and put the files in myself then I can find them ...
